I used lots of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies for this card.

I first took a piece of white cardstock and cut it into a size of approximately 14×10 cm. Then I placed it into an embossing folder and ran it thru my die cutting machine. Next I applied some orange and lighter green Distress Ink tones onto the background. After that I took a piece of eco dyed fabric, adhered that onto the background and added a piece of twine around it. Then I die cutted some mushrooms (by Joset Designs) and inked them with Distress Ink. After adhering those on their places, I added a stamped sentiment (Stampin´ Up!) and inked and outlined the banner before adhering the sentiment onto the card. Finally I added some grey and black ink splatters and a puffy sticker.

This is my take on the Thanksgiving theme. I hope you find the time to join in with us this month!!! Hop over to the MMCC blog to see what everyone else created!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

My favorite thing – the MMCC September reveal

Hi there! And just like that it´s September again. I hope you all had a lovely summer!!! Today I´d like to share with you the brand new Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s SEPTEMBER challenge. The theme this time is: HARVEST BASKET and as an optional element you are to use: FRUIT.

Here is my take (obviously without the basket):
Sanna Lippert

My Card is full of pears – suitable for September as they usually are ripe around this time. I´ve inked the pear stamp with three different Distress Ink tones (orange, green and brown)  and then stamped the images in rows.

I also outlined the fruit with a black pen, added some transparent rhinestones on each of them and colored those with Copic markers green or orange. Then I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and added yellow and green Glimmer Mist splatters onto the background as well as some black Glimmer Glaze spots.

Sanna LippertPears are one of my favorite fruit, so the sentiment is just perfect :). Now it is your turn – get your product out and create a fun mixed media card for this challenge!!!

See you at MMCC,

How far – the MMCC August challenge reveal

Hi there, time to share the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s AUGUST challenge with you today! This month you need to create a card around the theme: RAINBOW. As an optional element you are asked to use: DRAGONFLIES.

Here is my take: Sanna LippertI used a white cardstock base and added Patina Glimmer Mist with a paint brush onto the background (faux watercolour). Next I used the Rainbow Sky die cut die (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) to cut the rainbow, the clouds and the sun. I misted each of the rays with different Glimmer Mist tones (in rainbow colours). The clouds and the sun are treated with Silk Microfine Glitter (warm diamond & yellow).

Next I hand drew some dragonflies onto the background, added faux stitching on the outlines of the card and stamped and fussy cut the sentiment (stamp by Dylusions).

See you at MMCC,

Lollypop card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, it´s my turn again today at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a set of cards, created with the inlay pieces of the Honeycomb die cut die.

Sanna LippertI always like to save all the bits and pieces I have left from my previous projects as they are perfect for various projects. These inlay pieces of the Honeycomb die cut die create perfect backgrounds for cards. Here is what I did:

Sanna LippertStep 1: Take a 14 x 10 cm sized piece of white cardstock and color it with Brusho.

Sanna LippertStep 2: Take the Honeycomb die backing and use it as a position guide for the inlay pieces. Place it on top of the bold background and start adhering the inlay parts. This way the distance between the inlay pieces will stay the same.

Sanna LippertStep 3: Ink the inlay pieces with blue Distress Ink and cut 6 pieces with the Lollypop piece.
Sanna LippertStep 4: Before adhering these piece on their places, ink them with red Distress Ink.
Sanna LippertStep 5: Attach some green rhinestones into the middle of each Lollypop piece.
Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 6: Stamp the Seed of Thought Red Rubber Stamp – Take Time stamp sentiment with black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, ink with blue Distress Ink over it and adhere it to the card.

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertSanna LippertFor the second card, follow the previous steps, except start by coloring the inlay pieces with yellow, red and green spray ink. Ink the background blue (or use Blue Soft Finish Cardstock) and add some black ink splatters onto the background before gluing down the blue inked Lollypop parts. This is how the finished cards look like:

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI find it really interesting to use both the positive and the negative pieces of the die cutting process. There are so many possibilities to use the die cut dies and by changing the colors even the same card idea can be transformed into a totally new look.

Have fun creating,
Sanna

Hello – MMCC May inspiration

Hello there, again, lovelies!!! Today I´d like to share my second take on the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog´s May challenge. This time I´ve again used Brusho (kind of addictive, that product!!!). The challenge is all about REFLECTIONS and WATER.

Here is what I did:

Sanna LippertI again used a piece of watercolor paper as my starting point and first drew the puddle and the clouds onto the paper using a water tank brush. I then went and applied turquoise toned Brusho onto the wet areas. As it reacts with water, it soon created those interesting looking water areas. It is really fun to watch what you end up with in this process. Every image looks different! Next I let the blue color dry properly before changing to yellow to draw the sun.

Again first using plain water with the water thank brush to paint the sun, then I applied the Brusho over the area. Since it only reacts with the wet areas the powder that „lands“ on dry areas, will not smear -> when the sunrays were dry, I just dabbed the residue of and hand a clean image. Next I cut the umbrella from a Brusho toned paper piece with my die cutting machine and an umbrella die by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I added some white gel pen details onto the umbrella and glued it on it´s place. The „reflections“ on the water are also drawn with a white gel pen. Sanna Lippert The raindrops are also blue Brusho and there are even transparent ones in between – created with Glossy Accents – but in the photo they don´t show that well. Finally I added a raindrop border with a black pen and a die cut sentiment.

Now hop over to the MMCC blog and join the fun with us!!! See you there!!

Happy creating,
